About the performers:
Ted Morris always looks like he’s having the most fun in the room when he’s on stage, and doesn’t care if you aren’t. His intelligent, off-beat humour and wickedly charming smile lets us all know that our slightly warped thoughts are just fine. Born in Ottawa and now making his home in Toronto, Ted discovered his love of stand-up while getting his degree in veterinary medicine. He now splits his time as a small animal vet by day and stand-up comic at night, although it’s much more gratifying to “kill” on stage. He’s been called “fresh faced and hilarious” by NOW Magazine, and slightly ruder things by strangers in the street. Ted is a writer, producer and all around super guy. He has performed at the “We’re Funny That Way”, London and Halifax Comedy Festivals, and can be heard around the world on XM Radio. His TV appearances include 2 stand-up specials for Pridevision TV, The Toronto Show, The Comedy Network’s “Canadian Comedy Shorts”, MuchMoreMusic’s Heat Meter, The Smart Woman’s Survival Guide and the Halifax Comedy Festival on CBC. He taped an hour long comedy special for CTV’s “Comedy Now!” in the fall of 2011 which aired for the first of an endless number of times in April 2012.
From a blue collar background, Nick Beaton cuts through the bullshit of an overly bureaucratic society that takes itself way too seriously. Whether it’s done through his opinionated rants, hard hitting jokes, or his disarming "every man" personality Nick Beaton is a favorite wherever he performs. He has performed on 3 continents, 6 countries, and over 40 cities. His recent Edinburgh Festival show received glowing five star reviews, from both “Broadway Baby” and “Three Weeks,” the latter of which described him as having, “enviable confidence, timing, and manner of a comedian with decades of experience beyond his years.” He has performed at Montreal’s International Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, the Icebreakers Comedy Festival and has received numerous accolades for his comedy, including being a myspace featured comedian and winning the 2007 Just For Laughs Toronto Homegrown Competition, as well as being nominated for two Canadian Comedy Awards including one for his comedy special that aired nationally in Canada.
Hunter Collins is North America's foremost nincompoop comedian. Some call him an "International Television Juggernaut", others "The Draw", and others "The King of Modesty", but most know him as that man who keeps asking them for the rest of their food. Originally from Montreal, this bilingual performer has graced the stage at countless illegal baby-fighting rings and festivals, including The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, JFL42, The Cottage Country Comedy Festival (3 times including 2 as gala host), NXNE (5 times), The Montreal Sketchfest (4 times) and The Toronto Sketchfest. Hunter has sexed it up big-time on Much Music's hit syndicated show "Video On Trial", CBC Radio's "LOL" and in a surprising amount of rural bus stations.
A gregarious and dynamic comedian with a knack for telling it like it is, Rob Pue has become one of the brightest voices to hit the Canadian comedy scene.With unmistakeable charm, wit and trade-mark act-outs, Rob is a must see performance.Rob has also appeared as a regular on the MTV series Punk'd and recently had his one hour “Comedy Now” special air on the Comedy Channel. In 2013 Rob performed at all 3 Major Canadian TV Comedy Festivals - Just For Laughs Montreal, Ha! Halifax Comedy Fest and The Winnipeg Comedy Festival!Rob is now one of the top Corporate Clean Comedians on our Roster as well, having done the prestigious Investor's Group Comedy Tour of Ontario in 2013 and slated for the Maritime and Mid-West Canada versions for 2014. Only the funniest clean comedians are chosen for these tours, so very high praise indeed!Rob is a "military brat"; he was born on a base in Halifax and moved with his military father to Edmonton. He has played various military bases throughout Canada and has been invovled with several Military Comedy Benefits.
